Science: Why You Have Room for Sweets

I read this article which explains, in theory, why we have room for dessert even if we're otherwise stuffed:

"The sugar in sweet foods stimulates a reflex that expands your stomach"

Well THAT sounds like a bad idea. Didn't many of us have surgery to make our stomachs LESS expanded?

Read the article if you have a few minutes.

Oh hell no. I knew there was a reason I stopped ordering desserts!

So, what I get out of this is that if I'm going to eat something sweet I should make sure that it has a lot of fat, too! LOL ;)
